The NICOMPRESSOR (pronounced “Nigh Compressor”) offers distinctive tone shaping capabilities. It achieves exceptional compression dynamics while keeping higher-frequencies intact, making your guitar sound incredibly full and fat, without compromising your tone. In seeking to honor, improve, and expand this concept, Catalinbread developed a broader range of functionality and finely-tuned controls.
The Treble brightens your tone, making it sparkle, even when compressed.
The Bass enhances the lower-frequencies and increases sustain when turned up.
The Gain allows you to experiment by adding some grit or grain to your sound.
Staying true to its inspiration, the Compression knob design allows you to find the sweet spot and make adjustments simply and effectively.
When Volume is turned up, the compressor sends out a hot signal, boosting from within.
When Volume is turned down, the next effects in the chain boost the compression.
